Should John Key have accepted Gerry Brownlee's offer of resignation?

Yes. Brownlee is the Minister of Transport. The rules he broke are his own rules. He has a long history of demonstrating the rules are for everyone else. This wasn't an isolated incident. This kind of arrogance is one of Brownlee's major character flaws. It's also, unfortunately, the sort of 'entitlement' to bring the exception that National Party MPs and Ministers to often demonstrate. Which is why Key won't sack him. He'd have to sack most of his Cabinet.
Should diplomatic immunity laws be reviewed?

@Steve - we can decide to pull out of that agreement.

Diplomatic immunity is the product of an international agreement. We either do as we agreed or we don't. If we don't, then or own diplomats may be vulnerable in countries where the law is whatever suits the current regime there. There is nothing to review.
